160 meters DX-ing

There's no other amateur band like 160 meters for those that like a challenge (except maybe weak signal work on VHF and above). K1ZM explains in his book DXing on the Edge--The Thrill of 160 Meters:

"While DXing can seem almost routine on 20 or 15 meters, there's no band like 160 to get your adrenaline pumping."
"It still remains the last band where you cannot buy success with your plastic charge card."

Whether you like DXing on CW or ragchewing on SSB and AM, 160 meters is in a class by itself. There's a very good reason why it is still "the Gentleman's Band".
